On Saturday eight men and two women travelled to Telford for the second round of the Grand Prix Express North Wales Cross Country League, including six men who were to run again the following day in Christleton. Over the tough four lap course, first home was Josh Dixon, who had recovered very well from an injury during the first race two weeks earlier. Dixon finished in an excellent 13th overall, just staying ahead of Sean McCormack in 14th, once again leading home the V45 category in the race. Steven McCormack, improved very considerably from the first fixture, finishing in 39th position, his best ever position for the Telford course. Keith Elliott also ran very well, finishing in 109th position, with Dave Edwards, completing his fourth race in as many weeks, not far behind in 124th. Paul Thomas had an excellent run, well improved from the first round, finishing in 130th, while Alan Lucas, fresh from running in France recently, also ran superbly, to finish 136th. Stevie Ward completed the menís team, with a powerful run, rewarded with a 145th position.  Disapprovingly only two female Harriers travelled to Telford but they both ran superbly, with Jenny Richards just out sprinting Angie Hughes to the line by the slenderest of margins, to finish in 48th and 49th positions respectively. Thanks also to Geran Hughes, who despite being injured himself, travelled the long journey to Telford to help out and support the team.
